And the Oscar Goes to...Jackie Earle Haley?

While my official prediction for Best Supporting Actor is Alan Arkin for Little Miss Sunshine...due to the growing backlash against Eddie Murphy, I have this nagging suspicion that we're all barking up the wrong tree. After all, Arkin seemed like the consensus choice after Murphy...but something is telling me that Jackie Earle Haley might surprise us all.

Little Children FINALLY arrives in my state tomorrow, so I will have seen it and can be a better judge tomorrow. But we all know Oscar loves an underdog success story, and Haley has a great one.

This could be the stuff of which upsets are made. But the last time I had this feeling was about Imelda Staunton in Vera Drake...and that didn't work out so well.
